As a young adolescent, psychological counseling was encouraged- due to the traumatic upbringing I was experiencing. I denied it and refused to take part. I felt they wouldn't understand, and I would end up in some insane asylum if I opened up to them. However, I stumbled upon James due to my pursuit in coaching, but this transitioned into weekly psychological consultations, which was very impactful for me. Finally, someone who I felt safe to share my thoughts and experiences in which I felt no judgment or condemnation. He encouraged me to process my traumatic upbringing and provided me with tools to help overcome my anxiety and panic attacks that were creeping up on me without conscious awareness of what triggered them. These six months were very dark and I isolated myself to an extreme degree because I felt uneasy being around anyone, so I was very thankful for to have James to be the helping hand. After six months I still hear his voice in my head encouraging me with more than just "you can do this" type spiel to rile me up, but with words based on the reality of the situation, always taking the objective point of view to help regulate negative emotion. In one conversation in particular, when I felt I was recovering better from the tormented states I found myself in, I realized that if I just sat in this tormented state and let it run its course, it actually went away. I further realized that James was telling me this since day one, "Just let it happen." It took a good amount of time for those words James said to settle in and become embodied, but to be where I am right this moment I can honestly say is worth the time and effort. I am beyond thankful for all that James has done for me and recommend his services to anyone out there who is sincere about their psychological development. - Elizabeth Jett Halen
